Emma Snowsill Reveals That Chocolate is Her Secret
Three time world Triathlon champion and Commonwealth Games gold medallist, Emma Snowsill, tells how a chocolate diet keeps her going during race time. The petite racer's recipe for success involves brownies, cakes and bars of chocolate before racing.
While Snowsill's chocolate cravings may have nutritionists screaming in horror, it is a recipe that has worked for the 25-year old in hundreds of races including the 2003, 2005 and 2006 world titles.
Prior to becoming the first female to win three Olympic distance triathlon crowns, Snowsill enjoyed a chocolate breakfast four hours prior to the race and topped up with other portion just prior to the race start.
It provided Snowsill, a convert to the sport just seven years ago, with the fuel she required to continue Australia's long domination of world triathlons while writing her name into the history books with a trifecta of crowns.
"It doesn't matter what form it is in, as long as its chocolate," said Snowsill.
It seems fitting then that Chocolate Graphics® is a major sponsor of Emma Snowsill providing her with all the chocolate she needs to keep up her winning streak.
